somewhat of a gift from president obama. >> reporter: you could call it that. a group of president obama's top political donors helped pay off some of the leftover bills from her 2008 unsuccessful bid for the presidency. this is according to campaign disclosure reports filed last week. as you know, as secretary of state she was forbidden from political fundraising. >> do we know the kinds of changes that senator kerry will want to make when he becomes secretary of state kerry, either in terms of policy or personnel? >> reporter: it's not clear on the personnel front. there are still people waiting to hear what they'll do for a living when they show up at work monday in terms of the career foreign service folks. his inner circle is still unannounced at this point. but what we do know is on the foreign policy front, he really, to borrow a phrase from him, there is no daylight when it comes to secretary clinton's views and secretary-designate kerry's views on libya or virtually any other part of foreign policy. it was interesting, though, that he emphasized in his views economic policy is f

there will be the emphasis on the enforcement side, but i think that obama will spend some political capital on the issue of how these 11 million undocumented aliens can become on the path to citizenship. >> and as someone who kns that process, who knows the complicated paperwork, who knows the frustration of waiting for the bureaucracy, do you think it can be done, you can have a path to earned citizenship, which somebody comes forward, gets first a green card, legal status and then in line for citizenship. can that be done in a way that is fair or as fair as possible in the sense that if there is someone who has been waiting legally, will the people already in this country actually go to the back of the line? that's what a lot of people suspect won't happen. >> well, the senate proposal and president obama have both said they will go to the back of the line. that line in some instances is years long for family reunification. it is one of the reasons that employers have said over and over that we need a simplified streamlined immigration system so that persons can be hired legally. and have a legal path

and sounded like a grouch attacking president obama. a very political speech which i thought was discordant yesterday. there were two -- captain kelly, gabby giffords's husband, and the captain of the bald moore county sheriff's department james johnson who spoke very powerfully articulately and eloquently for common sense gun control measures, and then the other side of the panel, there were three gun nuts on the panel. david coppel, a professor from denver, a woman gail trotter, and wayne lapierre from the nra. gail trotter was out of her mine. i mean, she said guns -- i got the exact quote here -- that guns have to -- guns keep women safe. guns keep women safe. guns make women safe is the exact quote. and every mother needs an ak-15 in the home to protect their kids. and of course wayne lapierre comes back and says the only answer is we have to make every school an armed camp. >> it's time to throw an immediate blanket of security around our children. about a third of our schools right now have armed security already, because it works, and that somebody is grow

't be misled here. here's something this debate is not about, wls obama wants to use immigration as a way 0 club republicans or get a bill. it's not a question. the idea that anyone outside of political partisans believe that the president doesn't want to actually sign legislation now to fulfill a campaign promise is a bit naive. maybe that was the calculus in 2010. it was not the calculus this time. sure the president is using campaign tactics to pressure congress but he wants the legislative win. he already got the political win. it's called a second term. finally, friday is hillary clinton's last day in office. now that her successor has been confirmed, she is talking to the press, including andrea mitchell in a series of exit interviews. yesterday clinton weighed in on what may be the most underreports story in washington, the unrest taking place in egypt right now. clinton stood by one of the most consciousal foreign policy decisions the administration made that gets little little -- the ouster of mubarak. she responded to the head of the army who said that the state could fall part. >
